That's your decision if you like or enjoy the smell of pee. Vomit is another issue. Cats don't vomit because they have a behavior problem, and vomitting can be dealt with even if it is only a hairball situation. Vomitting is a sign of a health issue not to be likened to peeing because of a behavioral issue. It is comparing apples and oranges. I would not put a cat down because it vomitted either.

*sigh* Why is it that when someone starts disagreeing with people on this forum, others start crying You're judging me! or Stop criticizing me! Where exactly have I either judged or criticized you? You said that you had exhausted every possibility -- I pointed out that by my definition of every possibility (which I defined in the third post in this thread), you had not (at least based on what you had posted so far in the other thread in the Pets Forum). If you took that as personal criticism of you, then I'm sorry for that.

I realize a lot of posts on here are several years old, but I have to chime in. We had a cat that ruined the carpet in our old condo. We thought it was behavioral, and at times it may have been but it turned out there was a medical problem, not urinary tract related, but since he was, at that time asymptomatic, I believe he smartly did this to show us something was wrong. Vets can miss problems. Once he was regulated, the only time he peed outside the box was when his thyroid meds needed to be adjusted, a fact we wouldn't have known by his thyroid symptoms until the condition had far worsened.

We have also created the very same food acquisition assurances for our domestic dogs and cats. They, as we, no longer have to hunt to survive. Indeed, we no longer even have to live outdoors.
"Most of the times, even fractious cats will not realize that I have even been there. If your kitty is super sensitive, he may protest when he start feeling the injection, but this action is VERY quick and even if he reacts and gets a little upset about this first injection, this gentle and unobtrusive approach is FAR better, FAR LESS traumatic and more peaceful than any other approach. I will not come back in the room where you will be with your cat until after he has fallen asleep from the sedative and only when he is completely asleep will I come back in the room for the rest of the procedure and he will not be aware of my presence."
My brother found a stray pregnant cat, as soon as he got her home she started giving birth. I ended up taking two of the kittens, they had Giardia, my SIL had taken them to the vet and had gotten medication, but, they still had diarrhea for a week, or so. They would use the litter box once, then, because they associated the physical discomfort of the diarrhea with the litter box, they would use another area every time.
Elizabethan collars, also known as e-collars, are important to the health and well-being of injured cats. They prevent your cat from licking and biting injuries, possibly removing stitches and creating the need for further surgical procedures. Your veterinarian should be able to put on the collar for you, however, in cases of emergency, it is possible to do it yourself. 
And for those of you who are intolerant of human needs over an aging cat's. How about dealing with pee on the clean laundry or the dresser top or (the best yet) the stove top. Cats are delightful creative individuals. This type of behavior, though, is unhealthy for all involved. No solutions from the vet have worked, so a tough personal decision will be made in the next couple of weeks. Some of the more judgmental of you will certainly condemn me to hell if I put the 67-year-old cat down. I will cry, but my family and the house will be healthier.
If my peeing cat issue had not been easily worked around at the time, I have no idea what we may have done. She was otherwise completely healthy and happy.
To those of you who actually have this problem, please ignore the armchair activists on the internet. They do not accurately represent a sample of people in the real world, people who have other responsibilities and priorities above that of their pets, like the health of their families. Anyone suggesting that an animal is equal to that of their child in the hierarchy of their family is clearly mental.
